Coronavirus: HK$118 million worth of perks, prizes on offer for vaccinated Hongkongers in a summer bonanza of lotteries

·1-min read

To help breathe life into Hong Kong’s stagnant Covid-19 jabs campaign, companies have been offering a host of perks and prizes over the past couple of weeks through lotteries open only to the vaccinated public.

Answering the government’s appeal for a citywide inoculation push, Hong Kong’s bigwigs, property developers, blue chip companies and business chambers have put up goodies ranging from a brand new HK$10.8 million flat and a Tesla to gold bars, shopping coupons, hard cash and even a party on a private flight.

As the number of perks on offer continue to rack up, members of the public only stand a chance of winning if they have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
